Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Another LL Poll -- please cast your vote

Poll:
If ya had to choose a Grateful Dead Opus, the classic transcendent tune(s), in the prime....

69 Dark Star (351) (32%)
70-71 The Other One (62) (5%)
72 Playin' (107) (9%)
73-74 Eyes (210) (19%)
77 Scarlet-Fire (146) (13%)
77 Help>Slip>Franklin's (99) (9%)
77-78 Terrapin (65) (5%)
1980's Morning Dew (53) (4%)

* I'll take the 73/74 Eyes, for sure. Maybe it is because I am sober, that I'm not picking the Dark Star. This song/era is my Fri/Sat night go-to, early morning dancin in the living room, afternoon dank to chill my wild first graders out. Love it, love, love it. The song for me transcends, both space and time.

OK, here comes all the Dark Star votes...right???

Yeah Wayne!

We voted on it once somewheres...and StSt won over DS and Eyes...those were the top three if I recall.

I think that it has it all, and esp go for the June 68 sound, of course. Put it together with Bridge and the Eleven and for less than an ave DS you have 18' of amazing music.

You go Wayne. I'm with you. Although Eyes might be a tough contender.

Did you mean with William Tell and The Eleven?

I'll say Morning Dew. But NOT an 80's Morning Dew (why so limited?). THIS Morning Dew (just happens to be a TDIH, too):

Probably a no-brainer... Dark Star Jerry!

I was just listening to the Charlie Miller transfer of 4/25/71. During the show people are calling out for Dark Star. Jerry tells them "Where were all you Dark Star people a couple of years ago when we were playing it EVERY NIGHT?"

1972 Birdsongs

1971 The Other One- I find the later ones abit too extended
